Chapter 7: Client Intake and Assessment
The initial session with a client is probably the most critical. During this first encounter, the Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) will conduct several assessments related to physical readiness, general lifestyle information, medical history, goals, and other physical and psychological behaviors. The professional will also ensure all legal and ethical forms and procedures are signed and completed. More importantly, the initial session is the time when the corrective exercise specialist builds a rapport with their client.

Chapter 8: Static Assessments
Static posture represents how an individual physically presents themselves without movement and is a reference for the alignment of the body. Static posture is considered the base for movement because it requires isometric contractions from many different muscles to maintain muscle tension to hold the specific position.

Chapter 9: Movement Assessments
Movement is the means by which individuals are able to perform all activities, ranging from those necessary for daily living to job tasks and recreational enjoyment. Understand how optimal dynamic postural alignment and movement strategies allow for the identification of abnormal movement (i.e., movement impairments), which can indicate where muscle imbalances may exist.

Chapter 10: Mobility Assessments
Targeted mobility assessments of the major bodily segments should be used to focus and confirm the observations made during both the static and movement assessments.
